Taking some metal screws out that hold the chassis to the body shell out of a Hornby 14xx I was looking for somewhere safe to put them, given their propensity to go walkabout. Just happened to have a KD magnetic uncoupler to hand, screws safely stored. Photo shows the uncoupler and the screws with a couple of uncouplers and screwdrivers. Also useful for putting a bit of a magnetic field in the tip of the screwdriver for holding said screws when reinstalled. Any bar magnet would do the same job, although the KD one fits in my screwdriver case across the tips and maintains that slight magnetic field.
